James Berardinelli's ReelViews 6 of 10
One thing that can be said in favor of director Peter Ho-Sun Chan's The Love Letter is that it isn't afraid to buck Hollywood trends. For example, a central relationship in the movie is a sexual liaison between a college age male and a woman who is old enough to be his mother. When another character figures out they're having an affair (it's supposed to be a secret), she remarks, "How French!" This atypical March/June romance isn't the only thing French about The Love Letter; the movie's entire tone is European.
